‘Kissing Booth’ Joey King Shot Down Those Taylor Zakhar Perez Dating Rumors
There is a rumor Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez are dating. The Kissing Booth 2 stars have been spending a lot of time together after filming. King did a new interview talking about her past relationship with Jacob Elordi and basically shot down those new dating rumors.
Joey King and Jacob Elordi of ‘Kissing Booth’ once dated
King and Elordi met while working on Kissing Booth. They started dating in 2018, but their relationship ended months later.
The co-stars went on to make two more movies together after their breakup. It seems like they’re on good terms, but there are more dating rumors about the cast members.
There is a rumor she’s dating Taylor Zakhar Perez
Kissing Booth 2 introduced Marco. King had multiple cute scenes with Perez because of this.
The actors were seen spending a lot of time together. Perez also shared a touching Instagram post for her birthday.
“Honestly I could write about this woman all day. She is the reason I joined the KB2 family, she welcomed me with open arms and love, she supported me, she pushed me, she made me laugh (like pee my pants laughter and had to check my underwear), she inspired me to be a bettter actor, she shared her family with me, THE LIST GOES ON. Grateful for you forever. #tbt,” he wrote. King wrote “Can’t imagine my life without you. I heart you T” in the comment section.
Perez has claimed they’re just friends. “We were quarantine buddies so I would see [King] all the time because we lived five minutes away from each other,” Perez explained on the podcast, Chicks in The Office. “We know what our relationship is, we love each other dearly.”
She wouldn’t date another actor
King was a guest on The Howard Stern Show. There she talked about her past relationship with Elordi.
The star said she got a lot of negative comments about her looks while they dated. “They think that calling me ugly gives them a better chance of dating him,” she said. “I tuck myself in watching Frasier every night, feeling great about myself because I know why they’re doing it. It doesn’t really hurt me. It’s fine.”
She explained why she doesn’t regret getting romantically involved with her co-star. “I think it’s a good thing we dated in the first place. I learned the most I’ve ever learned in my life from him,” King said.
Stern asked her if she would date another actor in the future. “No. I couldn’t,” she answered. “I think that it’s awesome to date someone in your field, who gets it, but doing the same exact thing as somebody is tough. It’s really tough.”
That definitely ruins the theory that she’s already dating Perez. It sounds like King is looking for something different in the future.
